Danteshrek.jpgThe Rockies announced Friday that they’ll hold Dante Bichette day to honor the former slugger.
We’ll let the Denver Post’s Troy Renck take it from here:

The Rockies are honoring Dante Bichette on April 26, marking the 15-year-anniversary of his christening of Coors Field with a walk-off home run.
Bichette, a four-time all-star, hit .299 with 274 home runs and 1,141 RBIs in his career. He was a fan favorite, attracting a cult following with his movie-star good lucks (sic) and goofy personality.

    Looks like he could be on the Jersey Shore. Except without the drama

    Are they going to give everybody a t-shirt which, like the one the player used to wear, says “Bichette happens”?

    Did we really need to see that picture?

    Yes there will be a limited run of the original trademarked* ‘bichette happens’ tshirts for sale at locations near Coors field. Original design Dante approved and wore!
